Former Bemidji mayor praises Howes

As mayor of Bemidji for 26 years, I had the opportunity to work with many state representatives. I can say without question that Larry Howes was one of the finest. Larry works tirelessly to represent his constituents, he is highly respected by his peers in St. Paul and has a great record of working across the aisle to get the job done.

Larry approaches every situation with common-sense solutions even though they may not be the popular solutions. When Bemidji needed support in St. Paul we could count on Larry. Even though we were not in his district, he stepped up to the plate and worked for us.

You will find that Larry’s door in St. Paul is always open to meet with you and hear your concerns, and if he misses your call you can be sure he will get back to you.

Bemidji needs a strong voice in St. Paul, one that will represent us with expertise and hard work, and Larry Howes is the one who can do that. Whichever side of the aisle you are on, I ask you to vote for Larry Howes. I guarantee you will be happy that you did.
